Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Beyond expression blest is he
Whose num'rous sins are cover'd o'er;
The humble soul, to whom the Lord
Imputes his guilty deeds no more.

2 He mourns his sinful follies past,
And keeps his heart with constant care;
His lips and life, without deceit,
Shall prove his penitence sincere.

3 The man, who hides his conscious guilt,
Shall pine beneath a secret wound;
But he, who owns and leaves his faults,
With peace and pardon shall be crown'd.

4 The Lord hath built a throne of grace,
Free to dispense his mercies there,
That sinners may approach his face,
And hope and love, as well as fear.
